5 Reasons to Make a Gift on the Day of Giving

Day of Giving 3-21-23

We know that as college students, money may be tight. But you can still be part of the change! Consider making a small gift ($5 or less) on March 21 and learn why it can go a long way.

During our Day of Giving on March 21, when you give to Brockport, you’re giving back to yourself, to your Brockport besties, and to future generations of Golden Eagles. 

Here’s why you should consider making a small gift (even $5) on March 21 (not to mention that this year, giving is even easier. Give with Google Pay & Apple Pay): 

1. Fund Scholarships

Have you or a close friend received a scholarship from Brockport? If so, keep in mind that it was probably funded by Brockport donors. Help fellow and future students pay for college and graduate with less debt.

2. Save the Planet

Seriously. Previous donations have led to $91,000 in research opportunities. Help us make discoveries in Alzheimer’s, find a cure for African Sleeping Sickness, and save salmon populations.

3. Help Students in Emergencies

$32,000 has gone directly to supporting students in emergency situations. Give back so that we can continue to help students who have experienced a death in the family, an accident, a loss of property, a loss of income, or unanticipated medical expenses.

4. <3 Bport Athletics

DYK you can give directly to our athletic programs when you make a donation? Choose to give to a specific athletic team, or put it directly into our general athletic fund

5. Choose Your Own

Support an area of Brockport that has significance to you and see the direct impact of your gift.
